    Nah I am not attached to my maiden name, I have no desire to push some strong woman agenda. If he wanted my last name then he could change his but I would still take his. The way I see it is yes we are raised with family then we move on and make our own family and this is part of it.

    Part of marrying DH was taking on his name and I wouldn't keep my maiden name in any circumstance after marriage.

    I have kept my maiden name not because i dislike dh's but because I love my own. My dh couldn't care less, for us it is a totally antiquated concept, but each to their own

    My mother has kept her maiden name as well and I liked how as a child I felt tied to both sides of the family rather than just one if that makes sense.

    I haven't and won't change my name anyway. It doesn't sound funny, but I'm not changing it.

    I took DH's surname, even though it means that my middle name and my surname are now the same (spelt differently - xxxx xxxxxes xxxxxis).

    I had always meant to just drop my middle name, but it's now 10 years on and I still haven't.

    Nobody IRL generally know unless I tell them, but people at the bank etc always have a giggle

    I struggle with the same situation, my fiancé wants me to take his name I want to keep mine because I like my name (zieba) and I can't really have both names or I will be "chard-zieba" if I take just his name I'd be technically named a type of steak and how it's cooked :s....tricky situation

    Once you have kids most people refer to you as mrs childs surname so it really doesn't matter IMO if you do or do not take it. even if I remarry I'll still get the other surname I'm pretty sure

    I've never had that once. Any form I've filled out asks ny full name and his full name for anyone to check. When I was working in a kinder, if i had to write a kid's parent's full name I'd always ask the child if it was the same as theirs or something else. If they weren't sure it was easy enough to check the records.

    After my ex and I separated I went back to my maiden name. I was in QLD and just took my birth certificate into the transport dept, explained the situation and got a new license with my maiden name. I then used that license to change my name everywhere else. This was before we were divorced. I'm now remarried and took my husband's last name.

    If it rhymed or made some unflattering name then I probably would have kept my maiden name. Hyphenating would not have been an option, our last names were very similar, only two letters difference.

    Strong woman agenda? Baha. Do you realise that you are still a person without a male? An individual, no less. How ridiculous.
